Windows 10 is getting a big “Anniversary Update” this summer, and that’s going to transform your Xbox One.
Microsoft’s gaming console will finally work as a development kit this summer following the major upgrade for the company’s operating system that powers all of its devices. During its Build developers conference in San Francisco today, the company revealed this improvement will hit Windows 10 for free. Microsoft is working to capture a bigger piece of the $99.3 billion gaming industry by approaching it from console, PC, mobile, and future devices like HoloLens.
“Of course, this update will come to your Xbox One,” Windows devices boss Terry Myerson said during a presentation. “Now it brings all of your Windows applications into your living room and enabling you to turn any retail Xbox One into a devkit.”
